Arthur L. Miller died after falling overboard in a storm on the fishing grounds off Cape Cod. Another crew member, Robert E. Martell, jumped into the water to save him. He managed to reach Mr. Miller, who was floating face down, but he was unable to hold on to him when the crew pulled him back onto the ship. Mr. Miller's body was not recovered.
